Weekend Recap: San Antonio

Hello friends!  I hope everyone had a fabulous Valentine’s Day! I got to spend the night with my Valentine that you all read about in my last post.  We didn’t do anything crazy we just ordered in some thai food, got Sprinkles Cupcakes, and watched love movies like A Walk to Remember.  Needless to say I had a great Valentine’s Day! Only thing that kind of sucked is the weather got crazy cold here yesterday after a storm and I got sick.  (Literally my luck).

Today I will be doing a quick weekend recap.  I was going to do one Monday but with Valentine’s Day on Tuesday you can see why I chose what I did.  So as many of you know I decided to take the weekend off as a break.  I had been over working myself and I guess you can say my brain and body were definitely feeling it.  Luckily I got to spend my time off with friends in San Antonio.

I used to go to school in San Antonio when I was in college and later transferred so it holds a certain special place in my heart.  When we visit we usually stay with some friends and they live close to the city which is nice for us visiting.
We got there Saturday and while all the guys went to play basketball, the girls got to sit around and chit chat and just catch up.  Later that night we went to dinner at a place called ‘El Machito’ that’s at the Quarry.  It was really good! They also had very reasonable options on the menu! After we went to nearby bar that sadly I don’t remember the name but they had such a delicious prickly pear tea! (I’ll try to get the name!)  After, we went to a bar downtown called Coyote Ugly.  Definitely an experience for those who have never been there that’s all I’ll say. (No but seriously)Sunday, we got up and decided on such a cute little spot for brunch.  The name of the restaurant is “Feast” and they have a ton of delicious options!  I highly recommend it if you visit San Antonio.  Just make sure to get there early or call ahead if you have a large party.  We had six people in our group and the wait was an hour.  Luckily while we waited we found a super cute spot called “The Friendly Spot.”  It had $4 mimosas and they weren’t your average size either.  Definitely a good place to go for Sunday Funday.  It’s also dog friendly for all my dog families and they have a fun swing set for kids! After brunch we went to the Riverwalk.  Of course if you have never been to San Antonio before I highly recommend going.  It’s one of the biggest attractions there besides the Alamo.  They have a ton of delicious restaurants and cool shops all along the Riverwalk.  Also they have water taxi tours for those who have never been and want to learn a little about the history of the city and it’s buildings.  It was a great day to walk around and see it because I hadn’t been to the Riverwalk in sometime.

We ended the day there and said our goodbyes to our friends.  We had such a good time and it felt so nice to get away even if it was for a day.  Thank you to my friends for being so hospitable.

I hope you guys enjoyed this weekend recap.  Let me know what you did this past weekend or how your Valentine’s Day went!

XOXO,

    I’m kicking myself for never having visited San Antonio when we lived in Texas. It looks so pretty! And all that tex mex food looks amazing too!
